Welcome to the ShutterFest Lowdown page. Here, you will find most of the information you need for the event. Is everything covered? Of course not, it’s ShutterFest baby!
This year the layout is slightly different – platform, breakout, lunch, breakout, breakout. We’ve replaced the afternoon platform with another breakout session. This gives you the opportunity to attend 6 classes plus the 2 morning platforms. In addition, we plan on creating more shooting opportunities for you (see Rent-A-Human below) and more time dedicated to allowing you to check out the vendors at the trade show!
Expect to learn more than you have ever learned before. ShutterFest is like no other conference out there. Not because we say so, but because your peers have said so. At this one-of-a-kind event you will have access to speakers like never before. They are here because they care about our industry and want to share EVERYTHING they know. No rock-star mentality. You will network with your fellow photographers, make friends for life, and enjoy access to some of the best education available.
If you are looking for structure, you are going to hate ShutterFest. ShutterFest is not built for structure. This is your career. Enjoy the journey. Enjoy learning, networking, shooting, laughing and making new life-long friendships.
First time here? Well, take everything you know about conferences and forget it! ShutterFest is all about community. We are one big family. Everyone here loves photography and wants what’s best for the industry. It’s not about rock star mentality, it’s about growing as an artist and being around like-minded people who share the same love and passion you do.
Overwhelmed? YOU SHOULD BE. Take a deep breath and know that every year there are a bunch of new people who attend, they don’t know anyone, they are scared, overwhelmed, and every other emotion. It’s like your first day of school all over again. It’s completely normal. And just like school, after your first day and the nerves have settled, you will have made new friends for life. Come, enjoy, and soak up all the energy and inspiration.
